Black and White

I sort of envy people who decorate with black and white predominantly. I've often toyed with the idea of having a black and white room with just a few key pieces of vivid color (fuchsia or peacock blue, for instance), but I don't know if I could do it. I love a room that's a riot of color! But still, if I were to decorate in black and white, here's some pieces I'd seriously consider.

I wish the picture for this was a little better. This is just a run-of-the-mill over-the-door shoe organizer, but WOW, what a great pattern! I am tempted to run to the Home Depot first thing in the morning to pick one up. And right now it's on sale for just $10.50.

Okay, so I'm cheating a bit here, as these Iron Vines wall decals by Blik are actually cocoa colored, but wouldn't it be great if they were black? Look how well they'd match that shoe organizer.

By the way, I'll take Viggo too, if no one objects.

Do you see a pattern emerging here, or is it just me? This Rustic Baroque Coaster Set is available at Target and would look very nice supporting Viggo's glass of wine, don't you think?
